Mercury Work Group



UDEQ is facilitating a Mercury Work Group (MWG) to coordinate and collaborate mercury studies and investigations ongoing in Utah. Stakeholders from a broad base of state, federal, and non-profit agencies, industry, and the public, will participate to maximize the group’s effectiveness.

MWG meetings are open to all interested parties and will be held quarterly, as best as possible. The initial objectives of the group follow below, however, the group will undoubtedly shape these objectives as work progresses on this issue:

For more information on the MWG, please contact John Whitehead, DWQ.
